Today marks 25 years since I first moved to Philadelphia.
I spent 17 at the Philadelphia Daily News, where I also found many of my best friends — and I might write a little bit more about that gig in a few days. (I basically got fired in less than a week.)
Most of us went on to study or teach at Temple University, where I have done both, joined the staff several years ago and adopted some exciting new responsibilities just last month. (It’s kind of a soft launch, but you’ll see.)
Somebody almost killed me here last summer and I once spent a week in a coma but the city has been pretty good to me overall.
I’ve loved living in several Center City neighborhoods and found the love of my life here too!
I wonder what the new 25 years will hold.
